NPR POLL: Bad News For Repubs-35%Dems May=Weak -BUT- 46%Repubs=Warmongers
Terror Concerns Bother Both Parties
from The Associated Press

Thirty-five percent of those surveyed say they are very concerned that a Democratic takeover of Congress would weaken the fight against terrorism, according to the poll. But 46 percent say they are very concerned that if Republicans retain control, they will get the country involved in too many military missions.
..................

"The terrorism issue cuts both ways," said Andrew Kohut, director of the Pew Research Center. "It can disadvantage the Democrats who can be seen as not tough enough, but it can be more of a disadvantage for Republicans."

Kohut said the poll found that "independents are markedly more concerned about Republicans than they are about Democrats."

"The swing voters are more worried about the Republicans keeping control and that could be a problem for the GOP," Kohut said.
